Ross Von Erich: You know, we were back in Haiwaii talking to my dad and even gave us some good advice. He said you need to choose your friends wisely from now on.
Marshall Von Erich: So we surrounded ourselves with two of the best in the business right now.
Davey Boy Smith Jr: That’s right, The Von Erichs, I got your back. Killer Kross, I got your back. I’ve been in the ring with this man before. I spilled my blood, he spilled his blood. These guys right here, they’re a part of my family. Stu Hart trained their grandfather. Team Filthy, you want to come messing with us? We’ll see you in the ring tonight. And Dominic Garrini, I heard that you’re real tough in that gee. Well, guess what pajama boy? I’m gonna stick your head so far up your ass, you’re not gonna know if it’s Friday or Tuesday.
Killer Kross: Team Filthy, stinky , slimy, team smells like a fart, I don’t give a rat’s ass. You’re all in big trouble. You picked a fight with a group of people you can’t win. Tommy Boy, it ain’t that easy. You’re not getting off that easy my friend, you’re about to learn lesson number one. Never cross the killer because no matter where the time is told, in the end, everybody pays the toll.

Alicia Atout Interviews Richard Holliday
Alicia Atout: I’m here backstage at MLW with The Dynasty’s, Richard Holliday. Now Richard, Mance Warner has challenged you to a mystery opponent match. How do you prepare for a match like this? Do you have any predictions as to who you may be in the ring with?
Richard Holliday: Oh yeah, I have a few predictions of who Mance possibly could have chosen for me. I mean, it could be a drunken downtown as a bartender from the bar Mance frequents. Could be his garbage truck drive. Could be Quang. Might be the ghost of Carlos Colon, i’m just really not sure.
Alicia Atout: I’m pretty sure he’s still alive.
Richard Holliday: Is he? Okay, well, i’m not too concerned about that. However, whoever the opponent is going to be, I could promise you this, Alicia. Smell that? Can you breathe that in real quick?
Alicia Atout: I smell coffee.
Richard Holliday: That is coffee, but it’s also rarefied air. And I promise, whoever it is, they’ll be breathing that in.
Alicia Atout: I couldn’t help but notice that you don’t have the championship around your waist or in your hands, so where is it?
Richard Holliday: Oh, the championship is at the cleaners right now, getting a nice shining for tonight. But another promise for you, that opponent, they have no chance of even touching my Caribbean Championship

Breaking News: Mance Warner challenges mJF to a loser leaves MLW Empty Arena Match.
Richard Holliday Promo
Consumers, I am mere moments away from making my entrance here at the ECW Arena, to partake in a matchup in which, quite frankly, I don’t believe I should even be in the first place. You know who else doesn’t believe I should be in this match? Take a guess? That’s right, it’s my lawyer/my father. And I have to be honest with you, he is not very happy about this because he went ahead and reviewed my contract as he does from time to time. And within that contract, is a sub clause. And that sub clause states that, I, Richard Holliday should not be justified to a matchup chosen by an intoxicated performer.
That intoxicated performer is obviously Mance Warner, who was at minimum 14 beers deep when he chose this opponent. Now, who knows what kind of opponent is gonna be in the ring waiting for me. It could be some drunken idiot. It could be a dope addict. I have no idea, but either way, I am in danger. However, Mance Warner believes that he got one up on the dynasty by doing this, but Mance you have to understand one thing, put the beer down my friend. The Dynasty always wins, one way or another.

Alicia Atout Interviews Injustice
Alicia Atout: I’m here backstage at MLW joined by Injustice. Now, I have to bring up the obvious fact that it seems like there is a true problem, even some people might call it a beef amongst yourselves and AAA.
Jordan Oliver: I don’t have any beef with AAA. Myron, do you have any beef with AAA?
Myron Reed: No man, I ain’t good beef with nobody.
Jordan Oliver: You got any beef with AAA?
Koto Brazil: I ain’t got no beef.
Jordan Oliver: I mean, I do have a beef with somebody though. The only thing I got a beef with is MLW Management wanting to bring guys in from a different country and not focus on their superstars and they got a couple of superstars right here. You know what I mean?
Myron Reed: Not them we’re the real superstars here.
Alicia Atout: There also seems to be issues with Brian Pillman Jr, who i’m actually interviewing next week.
Jordan Oliver: That’s gonna make some really good TV. I mean, Brian Pillman is a loose cannon of course.
Myron Reed: Hopefully he’s healthy.
Koto Brazil: Hopefully there’s no injustice.

Low Ki Promo
Back here at the 2300 Arena. In a weeks time, I have King Mo. Professional fighter with a hell of a reputation. He’s fought some of the best of all time. Rampage Jackson. Bader. Crop Cop. This is who i’m lined up against. Yeah, you’re great, you have this great acumen, but you’re a pro fighter coming into professional wrestling. Mo, all the hype you have from pro fighting does not help you here. You want to trash talk? It was set a long time ago, ain’t no beef on records, they ain’t no beef on the in the internet either. You want to sit here and run your mouth against somebody you know nothing about that? That’s fine, that’s okay. Mo, you appear a little punch drunk. By the time I’m done with you, you’re gonna be kicked shit-faced.
Alicia Atout Interviews King Mo & Dan Lambert
Alicia Atout: King Mo, there’s been a lot of tension between yourself and Low Ki. Things are seriously getting heated between you two, so what’s truly going on?
King Mo: Well, what’s going on is, I think he’s a fraud. You know, I went to YouTube, typed in Low Ki and all I see was a midget getting bodyslammed. I ain’t seen no knockouts, I saw nothing. Low Ki is a low key fraud.
Dan Lambert: Hey, Low Ki can get as heated as he wants to get, it’s not gonna change match here. We all know what’s gonna happen when a two division world mixed marital arts champion gets in the ring with him. In fact, I’ve demanded that he have a corner man in his corner to throw the towel in and save that boy’s life when Mo gets his hands on him.
